Is Kelso an Oxford strain or American?
kelso is the name of a person who bred a number of lines of fowl in america. the only person who would no the exact breeding would be walter kelso,this can also be said for anyone who breeds gamefowl.
The fowl he bred were most likely english and irish in origin, in later times fowl called kelso type can be found all over the world it's only a name people give to that type, usually white or yellow legged reds,you can really called them what you like english or american it's up to the individual what they believe they are.
Question/point: If you took English fowl to china would they then become chinese game ?

Seems like you fit straight in to the discussions, it almost like youve always been here
As Andy points out above, breeds often adopt a local name. The derivation of the breed is often based on a slight but undamental change to the standard. You would have to decide which standard the Chinese were going to use for their interpretation of the breed, and if they took one different form the British OEG standard then they might rightly develop a CHinese Game breed.
